What Can COREtec Waterproof Flooring Do for You?

Everyone loves the look and feel of a beautiful hardwood floor, but there are certain conditions that might preclude a given room from being eligible for hardwood installation. Rooms where there is a reasonable expectation of high humidity levels, or even standing water, are a serious no-go for hardwood. So, what do you do if you want to have the beautiful look of hardwood in a room where wood is inadvisable? The answer is simple: COREtec waterproof flooring!

What is COREtec?

COREtec is a flooring material made of pulverized wood fiber mixed with intensely heated thermoplastics, which is then extruded into the desired form and overlaid with protective coatings to protect the high definition wood grain image layer.

The real magic comes in when this structure is then applied to a cork underlay which helps insulate your floor. Because cork has a natural resistance to fungal growth, it also serves as an effective anti-mold and mildew barrier.

What are the Benefits of COREtec?

The most obvious advantage of COREtec waterproof flooring is, of course, its ability to completely withstand moisture! The treated luxury vinyl top layer, combined with the plastic core, make this material completely impervious to all of the problems that standing water and high humidity cause to other flooring options. This means your COREtec waterproof flooring will never warp, cup, separate, or discolor due to prolonged contact with water.

However, the benefits of COREtec don't end there! This material is extremely durable, and is incredibly resistant to all of the daily rigors of heavy foot traffic and rambunctious children or pets. It also offers superior air-quality benefits, because there are no fibers or cracks to trap nasty allergens like pollen, dust, or pet dander.

Another very attractive feature of COREtec is its ability to mimic other flooring materials so well that even a trained eye would have trouble spotting the difference. This means you can have the increased durability and water resistant properties of a vinyl floor in any room of the house!
